Show Summary Details


Bleeding in the second-half of pregnancy constitutes a possibly lifethreatening condition. All professionals who care for women during pregnancy and childbirth must be aware of the causes and prognosis of such bleeding, and have a clear plan in mind for its differential diagnosis and management. Chapter 21 covers placental abruption, placenta previa, and bleeding of uncertain origin, as well as clinical presentation, management, and delivery.
